“I’m sure the university community is appreciative of the General Assembly’s actions because this will help parents, students, faculty and visitors feel safe on our campus.”
Virginia Tech spokesman Larry Hincker in January 2006 after a Campus Carry measure was defeated in the Virginia Assembly. Seng-Hui-Cho proved Mr. Hincker’s statement was deadly wrong on January 16, 2007.

It is sad when somebody must shoot a dog. Most of the time the fault lies with the owner of the dog who gets the animal out of bragging rights rather than love and have no frigging idea how to train the animal. I don’t blame any specific race of dog either. The Anti Pitbull hysteria we see now is nothing new; back in the 70’s after the movie The Doberman Gang, everybody and their idiot brother went out and got a dobbie… OK I lobbied my Dad till he relented and also got one. Immediately the same horror stories we hear now about the pitbulls were heard about the Dobermans: Attacking other dogs for no reason, attacking adult and kids, etc.
I did take the time to train mine and never had an issue with him. We went on to have 2 more Dobbies, trained them both and they were smart and fierce dogs that would not hurt a soul unless the command was given. We also had German shepherds and a Belgian Malinois along the Dobermans and they all got along like crazy.
I miss having dogs. But the damn cat will not let them in the house. 🙂
